Accurate calculation of heat transfer coefficients for motions around particles with a finite-size particle approach

Abstract : The calculation of heat transfer between fluid and a set of particles is a complex task as soon as the simulation mesh is not adapted to the shape of the particles. In the present work, a, Implicit Tensorial Viscous penalty method is used [1] to resolve the flow. A new Lagrange extrapolation coupled to a Taylor interpolation of high order [3] is extended for estimating heat transfer coefficients on isolated sphere, a fixed Faced-Centered Cubic arrays of spheres and a random packed spheres. The simulated heat transfers are compared to various existing Nusselt laws of the literature. The numerical convergence and accuracy of the method is also discussed. An illustration of obtained results is given in figure 1 for FCC arrangement of spheres.
